captions paid for by nbc-universal television hello, everybody. it's boozeday tuesday. it's july 10th. we are so glad you're with us today. >> how are you? >> you know what you're looking like? like you're getting ready for the olympics. i know you're not wearing ralph lauren, but it's that look. it's going to be crisp. >> i don't know if you recall, but you and i have been banned from the olympic games. >> actually, we'll start a whole
2:06 am
thing on our facebook. >> about what? >> because people want to see you at the olympics, don't you? i personally am far too busy with important things, but i think hoda needs to go, doggone it. she needs to go and represent egypt at the olympics. >> what's the point? >> we need you guys to go to our facebook. we want thousands to go to say yes we need us some hoda. >> why am i going? what am i doing? >> what do you mean? you can get in trouble for two weeks. i'm thinking about you. i'm concerned about you with that much time off. you never had it in your life. >> i know. does this mean to go and work or have fun? >> no. you're going to work. we want your suggestions. >> what a nice way to begin. all right. let's move on to the tom cruise and katie holmes settlement. >> she has been on the cover of this now ten days. the "daily news."
2:07 am
>> they finally reached a divorce settlement yesterday afternoon. it was quick. she filed 11 days ago. >> tom just found out three days ago. >> very quick, they issued a joint statement, which usually there's a lot of push and pull before something like this comes out. here's what they say, "we are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter suri's best interests. we want to keep matters affecting our family private, and express our respect for each other's commitment to each other's respective beliefs and support each other's roles as parents." >> she was raised catholic and he is a very very vocal scientologyist. she is going to raise suri here in new york and raise her in the faith she grew up in. i don't know. you can't believe some scientology and some christianity. they do not mix. >> she converted to scientology.
2:08 am
she talked about how she was raised a catholic but she was interested in the auditing process of scientology and gave a couple of interviews to that effect. a short time later she said she converted. anyway, it will be interesting -- >> remember what we talked about that. every time i hear the word "converted," it sounds funny to me. if you're so easily ready to change what you believe to something else, it means you really didn't believe it to begin with, it seems to me. maybe you were raised in something but didn't believe it. >> i think sometimes if you're introduced to something you didn't know about, you go, i didn't know about this, you learn about it and it's appealing to you, i can see changing. >> changing and evolving is really good. but changing your basic belief system? that's a huge thing. that's huge. >> it is a big deal. all right. this is interesting. it was in jersey, a place called seaside, new jersey. there was this crazy weird storm
2:09 am
that came out of nowhere. there's this ride. you can transport yourself -- >> a sky ride. >> up on top there are two girls stuck up there because the power shut down. >> look at that. >> she was terrified. she was so afraid up there that she was in some metal death trap, she called it, she decided to haul off and jump. she ended up not hurting herself. she had bruises and bumps. she was so scared up there. there's lightning, thunder, a crazy storm. would you have jumped or sat up there? >> it's hard for me to see -- didn't look like 30 feet, looked like about eight. >> it was longer. >> i probably would jump, too. i don't know. >> i think i would have been freaked. that storm is coming out of nowhere. here she goes. her shoes are off first then you go. >> good news is she is okay and her friend who stayed was not hit by lightning. i don't like anything older than
2:10 am
i am except for frank. i'm very fond of frank. those rides are sometimes so old, like some of the elevators you get on here in new york city. you wonder, when is the last time this thing was checked? >> i do get scared. there is an elevator at my gym that is so bad. it always gets broken and stuck. i'm always afraid when i get in it. i wonder if i'll make it. it grinds and cranks. it's scary. >> why i don't you get a new gym? >> i like my gym. you guys are going to freak over this. mayor bloomberg has a plan to make itty-bitty, tiny, micro unit apartments. >> housing is a huge problem in the city. >> he has proposed making tiny apartments between 275 and 300 square feet. >> that 25 feet makes a big difference. >> know how much it costs you in new york for this apartment? two grand a month. when i first moved to new york i freaked.
2:11 am
the new york apartments are so small and they were like this is a studio, here is your living area and over here is where you'll sleep. it's all in one room. >> a studio apartment. we happen to have one set up for you. >> what does 300 square feet -- this looks big because of the crazy wide angle of this camera. let's use the regular camera to show what it really looks like. >> the black line or the white? >> both. let's do not the wide shot. >> i think it's lovely. >> this is the living room where amanda and jerry, lovers, are watching their favorite television show. >> yes. then the bedroom -- where is the kitchen? >> you probably have to have a sofa here which opens up. jerry, you have to go. you would have the bed that opens up and have your crazy "shades of grey" stuff there. >> ew, why did you say that? >> the kitchen would be over here. the wide shot is deceiving. >> this looks roomier than i thought it would be.
2:12 am
>> i could live here. i do live in one. >> thanks so much, you guys. pay your rent on time. hoda, remember your apartment when i first met you had a huge hole in the middle? every time it rained your apartment flooded. >> i was paying $4,500 a month for that. >> what? >> it's a rip off. it's a real rip off. that's what you pay for no space. you pay for what's around you. >> you pay for your environment. >> we've been very worried about you because you're not sleeping. >> i know. >> you've been talking about having sleep problems. we're doing a segment today on that. people had -- there was a huge reaction to your issue. >> because i'm not alone. it's very, very common. >> no one is sleeping. barbara says your hormones may be out of whack. >> no kidding. i said that. i told you when i got pregnant with cody, that's when it all changed. that was hormonal.

2:15 am
grey, who would you pick? >> kevin costner in "no way out." remember that? >> yeah, that's good. >> that would be pretty much it. >> or who else would he look like? >> a little something like this. yeah, baby. >> that's a hot picture of frank. you know who i think would be perfect? if you remember the movie "wall street?" gordon gekko? michael douglas, bossy, in charge. >> you like that! >> i like it just like that. how about him? >> bossy and in charge. unless you're out of the bedroom, then you want to be the boss. >> exactly. >> how is that working out? a new study. you know what you need, hoda woman? you need a baby or a dog. apparently, to be really healthy. if you want your baby to be healthy, you need a dog.

2:35 am
and it was a tool of punishment. your body doesn't know whether you're on fifth avenue or in serengeti. it just wants to know you're moving. >> how long should someone get moving for? >> as long as possible. half hour in the morning, 45 minutes. but also little chunks throughout the day. you know, we're physical creatures. we're meant to move. >> take the stairs. instead of the elevator. >> you say skip breakfast. joy bauer says that is a huge mistake. >> i do it all the time. >> most people don't skip breakfast, right? >> right. >> and most people are heavy. >> but everyone on our joy fit club, these people who weighed a ton and lost a lot of weight, all said they skipped breakfast. >> it's actually delaying breakfast. ultimately you will break your fast. >> when do you eat, after your cold bath? >> you don't have to have the cold bath, you want to get moving in the morning. wait an hour or two then have breakfast. >> let's move down here to the abs. apparently this helps with your
